Abstract: The narratives of Mattie J. Jackson, Elizabeth Keckley, Louisa Picquet, and Eliza Potter, all set in major U. S. cities, demonstrate Black women as agents of their own labor, exploiting urban spaces that afforded interactions with multiple clients, employers, and slaveowners, interactions that yielded freedom, agency, and economic sustenance. Of equal importance, these narratives document relations between Black and white women in the urban cultural landscape where Black women’s labor commands white women’s wealth, sometimes their respect but rarely their regard as equals. This presentation exposes the complex exchange and the machinations Black women performed to succeed in these environments.

Abstract: Multiple forms of intimacies permeate contemporary Japanese society. Recent explorations of commercial leisure spaces in Japan have characterized them as offering “quasi-intimacy” – a term used by anthropologists as well as natives to describe how most of these spaces do not actualize direct intimate relationships in the end. In this presentation, by unraveling the meanings and dynamics of “quasi-intimacy” in commercial leisure spaces I analyze the gendered expectations and subjectivities that mark contemporary marriage, intimacy and work life among Japanese working men and women. While Giddens has characterized contemporary relationships as having been revolutionized by a “transformation of intimacy” under late modernity, this paper traces the continuities and changes in the nature of intimacy in marriages in Japan. Drawing on fieldwork with men and women in work and after-work commercial spaces, I argue that their gendered expectations and subjectivities highlight how the continuing democratization of marriage, the work force, and the private sphere in contemporary Japan has opened up the space for new desires for romance and love in mate selection, and yet these new expectations and subjectivities have also produced new challenges in marriages through what could be called the “transposition of intimacy” within the course of marriage.

Abstract: We develop a view of intimacy based on Arun Saldanha’s notion of “viscosity.” This view allows us to conceive intimacy as a configuration of communicative practices and material conditions that emerges in interaction. To illustrate the merits of this view, we show three dimensions of the emergence of intimacy as viscosity based on observational and interview data. We then discuss the implications of our communicative view of intimacy for research on language and social interactions.

Abstract: This study investigates the correlation between alcohol use and opposite-sex friendships. Research has been done on the dynamics of opposite-sex friendships, but few studies have incorporated the effects of alcohol consumption on these friendships. This study, which looks specifically at college students, incorporates the variable of alcohol and how it influences the likelihood of opposite-sex friends becoming intimate. Analysis of the results found that the consumption of alcohol was a significant predictor of the likelihood of opposite-sex friends becoming intimate.
